Clog Fly Fishing, Asp streamer

This is a little fly tying video of a spinning fly for Asp, but it looks something I could knock up for a bit of ultralight perch fishing on spinning set up. Check out the channel and the blog

Niggas On Da River

Warning very strong language

There are lots of English words I have trouble spelling but one of the most difficult words I have had to write is in the title for this Blog post. This is the first episode of a youtube fishing series from Oregon, the camera works isn't great, the sound, isn't always good, the music is a little patchy and I think they could do something with the editing, but I could watch this and have until it has hurt my eyes and sides.  Please share and subscribe to their channel,  I want these guys to kick  Duck Dynasty into oblivion.

Antonicont Handmade Lures

Italy has had more than its fair share of old masters, Botticelli, Michelangelo but what about some new ones. Antoni Conteddu of Antonicont Handmade Lures is one of those artists who takes, wood, paint and shiny things to some other place most of us can just dream about. It is hard to find one point alone that stands out about his creations, it is all a master work, the internal engineering and weight shift, external form, carved details and paint work is on a line of perfection.

When looking at someone’s work at this level I can only be inspired, and also a little bit jealous but I take comfort in thought that something else has to suffer for this greatness and maybe he is a terrible cook who’s pasta is always overcooked, or maybe not. Check out his facebook page Antonicont Handmade Lures, you may wish your keyboard had its own like button to save precious time while viewing.

Test Tank Tuesday with Mikko

I do not normally post Mikko's (Solarfall Baits) stuff on this blog, because If you don't already know who he is, his website and videos then you are probably living under rock or you have finally been released after serving a long prison sentence. So for those ex-cons and Martians I give you Mikko's latest soft plastic monsters, and what a test tank. This is really a combination of his wood carving skills, mould making and a special soft plastic paint in the hands of a master from CAB paints of Finland. Oh yeah and just to rub it in he goes and catches a nice pike. BLOG LINK
